Elder Scrolls Livestream Questions Answered
Devs take on Elder Scrolls Livestream Questions at QuakeCon
After last week’s QuakeCon, devs took to the Internet to answer Elder Scrolls livestream questions that came their way. Bethesda presented their very first gameplay stream featuring a dungeon run and a peek at the combat in the upcoming MMO. When it was all said and done, Elder Scrolls livestream questions came pouring in and now you can read their answers.
The Elder Scrolls Livestream questions were very specifically about the footage shown at QuakeCon, and the video is worth checking out if you want to see what the fans are asking about. It was interesting that a few of the characters in the Fungal Grotto dungeon were a tiny bit over the level of the dungeon and on the video it looked pretty easy. But the devs pointed out that the players’ health pool depends on where they put their points into; magika, health or stamina.
In direct response to feedback from beta testers, developers have decided to put in a compass in lieu of a mini map. “When we had a mini-map, we noticed many testers felt like they should just follow quest markers, and they were less inclined to explore. This ran counter to our intent of being a game that emphasizes exploration.”
It seems that the transportation system will work very differently when it comes to PvP. “We don’t want to have battles where each side can instantly transport in reinforcements, assuring no clear winner.”
There are several other questions answered about loot, princesses… and mudcrabs. Check out all the answers at the official site. The folks at Bethesda seem to dig the Elder Scrolls livestream questions and hope to keep answering them.
